ShyamAs production and service industries have transferred en-mass to Asia (where costs were low), millions of ordinary people in the USA and Europe no longer have jobs. The once-booming housing market has stagnated and home-loan foreclosures have never been higher. The world is on the brink of an even deeper financial crisis. Failing, Euro-based economies like Greece, Portugal, Ireland and Spain have fallen into arrears on spiraling national-debts. Their short-sighted leaders have finally been obliged to cut their spending, but, at the same time, they have acquired further titanic debts at even higher rates of interest - guaranteed by debt-ridden neighbours whose own credit-ratings are also far from healthy. It's actually beginning to look like the Euro (in its present form) cannot be sustained. The short-sighted reaction of US leaders has been to cut spending and to print more money, much of which has been given to the wealthy bosses of failing financial institutions whose unfettered greed triggered the world financial crisis of 2008. Traditional businesses are trying to adapt, and many citizens are struggling to survive.
In the midst of this gathering economic storm, gangs of heartless charlatans have been allowed to stoke a false beacon of hope which they have cruelly labelled 'MLM Income Opportunity.' Currently, every year, more than 10 million Americans, and countless more millions worldwide, are being deceived into giving their time and money to 'MLM income opportunity' racketeers in the false belief that, by doing so, they are charting a risk-free course to enter a safe haven protected from the economic storm. In reality, the only 'opportunity' that has been on offer, has been the fraudulent opportunity to peddle false belief in the validity of 'MLM' to more, ill-informed victims. However, the cruelty of 'MLM income opportunity' fraud has not been confined to financial loss. Core-victims have been conditioned to infect their friends and relatives - often to the extent that the social and personal damage has been far greater than the financial damage.
Each core- 'MLM income opportunity' fraud victim has been subjected to co-ordinated, devious techniques of social, psychological and physical persuasion. These have been designed to alienate core-victims from legitimate careers and businesses and convert them to an unquestioning acceptance of 'MLM' as their only salvation. As we have witnessed on Corporate Frauds Watch, the most-deluded victims of 'MLM income oportunity fraud' quite literally hate anyone challenging their false beliefs, and they are prepared to lie to, cheat and destroy such people whom they see as a threat to future salvation. 'MLM income opportunity' fraud is undoubtedly a perversion of the traditional 'Christian' religion. Yet, this major criminogenic phenomenon has never been fully-exposed.
The wealthy bosses of various large 'MLM' cults continue to hide their criminal objectives from the public and from the authorities. They have bought political protection on a scale which makes the 'Mafia' look like a bunch of amateurs.
Whilst our short-sighted political leaders do nothing, 'MLM income opportunity' fraud remains one of the greatest threats to democracy and the rule of law all around the world .David Brear (copyright 2011)
